Scott Everton. Scott is a 4th generation Dorchester resident who worked in the Optical field for 13 years. After paying for most of his own tuition and books he began the application process for optometry school only to realize he would be nowhere close to affording the application fees, never mind tuition for medical school, he kept at his sales job with Luxottica the largest eyewear retailer in the world.
After riding his bike to work everyday pondering how to get his own business of the ground, Scott had the idea to create the first mobile Pop Up Optical Shop and Solar Flair was born.
He has a commitment to supporting/hiring employees from the Dorchester/Roxbury neighborhood and couldn’t have made it without the the help of his family and friends.
